In 1939 the Hamilton Dodson was released to the public and it was at a cost of $37.50 which was FAR from affordable in it's time, that equates close to $650 today! The lug design alone is what first attracted me to this watch, after looking further and seeing the perfectly untouched dial which is in perfect condition, then the applied gold numerals with the most interesting font and the way they shine in the light! This beautiful watch comes freshly serviced and running well! Pick it up whilst it's still here and before the collecting world clocks on to this beautiful piece!
The Seiko Flightmaster is one of those quartz Seiko watches that have caught fire and the collecting world has gone crazy for! Once on the wrist you can see why, it feels great. This one comes on a great strap and the full bracelet is still brand new in the box!
Here we have my first Omega Chronostop of the store and it definitely won't be the last! The case dimensions of this watch are perfect and it really feels great on the wrist, plus the fact that you are getting a great looking Omega with a brilliant movement for WAY less than a standard Speedmaster or even a gold Seamaster is insane! I truly believe the prices of these today we will look back on and wonder why we didn't buy more and put them in the safe!
35mm Vintage Chronograph from Lemania quite a bit under £1000? Can you really get much better than that? The eggshell dial on this watch is perfect and has aged nicely, beautiful concentric circles on the chronograph subdials, gold hands and indicies that play so well with the light. Nice sharp and long lugs providing a nice lug to lug length on the wrist and giving great presence... Most importantly all powered by a lovely manual wound and sharp actuating Chronograph Movement! Don't wait around on this one either, I think these are only going to go up as collectors appreciation for them continue to rise!
I am definitely on a streak of weird and wonderful watches and this is no exception! An unusual 70s Wittnauer with it's original box, papers, leather strap and hand tag! The case is what got me with this watch, the unusual (For it's time) rose gold plate case with the most extravagant bezel I have ever seen, it is almost like a bark finish which plays with the light so well when on wrist. Whilst talking about on wrist it wears so well considering it is 33mm, whilst small it has a large wrist presence due to that bezel and the rich and warm rose gold tone which follows to the dial which is developing a nice and even patina.
If you are looking for a dressy watch that will stand out in the swarm of clean and classic dress watches then look no further, this piece will definitely turn heads and spark conversations!
The time has come to say good bye to one of my personal watches and one I have probably owned and worn the most beyond my Tudor. It'll definitely be sad to see it go but I know for a fact whoever owns this beautiful watch will not be disappointed! It was freshly serviced this year and is running great, I decided not to have it polished so it definitely has signs of wear to the bracelet but due to the polish and brushed styling it wears them well and you really cannot tell unless you photograph in direct light like I did for the photos above!
This is one of those cool watches with an equally cool story! So it goes that Squale found multiple, original, bakelite bezels in a draw and decided to make a limited edition of 60 watches in 3 different colour ways. The end result is incredible, it begs to be photographed and truly feels great on the wrist. It is quite a thick watch but due to the shape of the case and the profile of the case back it actually hugs the wrist fairly well, that is even on a smaller wrist.
The use of a Bakelite bezel here is what really takes the show! Also the vintage colour ways, of the 3 colours they used this is my favourite as it feels the most retro. I think they made a great choice of making it this limited, this really feels like one of those watches you will not see again, and that is limited!
Points of Mention
This is a pre-owned watch being sold in very good condition and a complete set with all it's accessories and extra straps, it even comes with one more strap than it did when purchased originally. Limited to 60 pieces it is a rare watch, of those 60 there are 3 different colours split into 20, so technically this colour is 1 of 20 made.
Squale is one of those brands that doesn't always get the love it deserves in my opinion, however even the "haters" of the brand that I have shown this watch their opinion usually changes! I think regardless of your opinion on the brand this is one hell of a watch and offers so much for so little in my opinion! Also, find another one!
If you're name is Douglas I have found the perfect watch for you! Another unknown brand with a unique design, what is not to like? This case shape hugs the wrist and sits so well and it wears larger than the numbers might suggest. A beautiful blue dial which has an almost fume effect which has potentially developed over time, large and bold indices with straight and thick hands, all complimented with a useful date complication located at 3 which is working perfectly!
When you take a look at this watch and then realise it is from 1977 you just cannot believe it! Sure there are some signs of wear, the gold plating is scratches and there a few marks here and there... But the way this watch has survived in it's condition and the overall design is truly brilliant! The pattern on the dial that consists of beautiful directional lines, the shape of the case and once on wrist it's a great experience!
A Meteorite dial for the price I am offering? That is seriously insane! This watch is built incredibly well and powered by the ever famous Seiko NH35 automatic movement, design cues have been borrowed from Rolex but the dial and rubber strap give it that unique look when on the wrist! Not only that but you also get a Sapphire Crystal, Ceramic Bezel and 500M of water resistance with a helium escape value... This is a true tool watch with great aesthetic features! For the price you truly cannot go wrong!
